Baby Zebra

15x11 mixed watermedia on Canson 140 lb cold press paper done today. Using an India ink color chosen at random, I drew with the tip of dark purple on dry paper.  I used a small resin figurine to draw from life.  These were the darks and stripes were added.  Next I spritzed with a fine water mister to move the ink a bit.  With a large foil paper doily I put pink acrylic over the holes with a sponge brush, then flipped the doily over and ran a brayer for another application of the wet paint.  When about dry, watercolors were put in with 1" flat brush beginning with Blue Bice Hue (American Journey), arylide yellow, transparent pyrrol orange, quinacridone gold, permanent rose and quin magenta.  Lastly I stamped with the top circle of a plastic container.  It was a fun, experimental piece with no real plan.
